Crystal Palace and West Ham have been involved in a series of close Premier League encounters over the past few years and are again hard to split at Selhurst Park.
Last month’s 1-1 stalemate was a fourth draw in seven meetings, while the other three contests were only decided by a one-goal margin.
We’re happy to take 23/10 for them to share the spoils once more for our first Crystal Palace vs West Ham prediction.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace can be forgiven for finding Manchester City too hot to handle in a 4-0 away defeat and had been in solid form before that setback.
In their three previous league games, the Eagles had drawn with Leicester and Arsenal either side of beating Sheffield United 2-0 at this venue.
Reflecting on the loss to City, Gary Cahill said: “It wasn’t like our goal was being peppered, we kind of killed ourselves in the end.
“But we have got to regroup, we have got to go again. We have got a massive month coming up.
“We take this, we learn from this and we know the next six games are vitally important for us.”
Cahill’s return from injury was a boost and Wilfried Zaha will hopefully be back here after missing that match due to a slight knock.
Both teams have scored in the last seven renewals of this fixture, so 5/6 for that trend to continue appeals from the Crystal Palace vs West Ham odds.
Last Palace line-up: Guaita, Ward, Tomkins, Cahill, Mitchell, Milivojevic, Townsend, McArthur, McCarthy, Eze, Ayew.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham will be high on confidence after Saturday’s 4-0 FA Cup drubbing of Doncaster made it five straight wins in all competitions.
Pablo Fornals and Andriy Yarmolenko netted in the first half before Rovers defender Andy Butler put through his own net and debutant Oladapo Afolayan grabbed a late fourth.
Assistant manager Alan Irvine said: “Fantastic to be through, fantastic to get the clean sheet and to score four goals.
“It was great to give three lads their debuts and great to see one of them score as well.”
The Hammers have had a favourable fixture list since starting 2021 with a fine 1-0 triumph at Everton.
Stockport were then edged out of the cup before narrow home victories over Burnley and West Brom in league action.
However, their consistency this season has to be commended, losing only to Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea in the last 17 top-flight matches.
Seventh place in the table is a fair reward for such a solid run of form and we think they will pick up another useful point here.
Let’s go with 23/4 for a repeat of last month’s 1-1 scoreline between these sides to finish off our Crystal Palace vs West Ham betting tips.
Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Balbuena, Diop, Fredericks, Johnson, Lanzini, Noble, Fornals, Soucek, Yarmolenko, Benrahma.
